Question about Car Audio & Video
If i had a five channel amp 4 channels at 4 ohms to 4 speekers 75w each and one sub channel is 300w at 4ohms but i have two subs that are 4 ohms each and requre a little bit more power, about 200 each should i get another amp or is it ok to just hook both subs to the one channel. . . and just make due with the slight power loss? or will i just increase that one channel now to 8ohms? my goal is i wanna run all four mids and both subs with one amp. . . but i cant find an amp with two sub outs. . .
Based on your description and on the idea of a single amp, then your plan of hooking up both the subwoofers in series (to get 8 ohms) would be the safest as against running the subs in parallel (2 ohms). This way the sub amp would not be overly loaded, you can compensate the slight loss in power by strategically positioning the 2 subs. A friendly reminder, pls observe polarity when hooking the sub speakers.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

This will allow 2 channels to run 100 watts each @ 4ohms with an additional single channel with 250 watts @ 4 ohms.
The single sub channel is created by bridging channels 3 & 4
